[Bcache v13 05/16] Export get_random_int()

From: Kent Overstreet
Date: Wed May 09 2012 - 23:09:18 EST

This is needed for bcache - it needs a fast source of random numbers for
the throttling code in order to fuzz IO sizes, but the random numbers
don't need to be any good (and it immediately converts it to a
binomially distributed random number with popcount anyways).
